Artist's Description

PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGE TO VIEW LARGE.

Bridge 11 is one of the distinct ’ snake ’ bridges on the Macclesfield Canal. They were names ’ snake ’ bridges due to their shape. This bridge enabled the horses which used to tow the old barges, to change from one side of the canal to the other
as the towpaths changed sides. This method was one of many that saved the bargees from having to unhitch the towrope from the horse.

The Macclesfield Canal was started in 1826 by Thomas Telford and completed in 1831 at a cost of 320,000 pounds. It joins the Trent & Mersey Canal with the Peak Forest Canal at Marple Junction – a distance of twenty six miles ( 42 km ) and was an alternative route from the south into Manchester.

Location: East Cheshire, United Kingdom.
